Caravan Stage

by Safespot

Api-Vat and Musashi Oboro, both shoot’em up music lovers, present their first joint mixtape under the name Safespot. Caravan Stage is one hour of music entirely dedicated to "suicide bullets" and "smart bombs".

Always willing to share his discoveries with a particular taste for retro bangers, Api-Vat is an insatiable VGM enthusiast who offers a carefully chosen piece of VGM every day on Twitter accounts "1 jour 1 musique de jeu" and "Daily Shmup Bangers".

In love with the Mega Drive soundchip, addict to SEGA and Sonic The Hedgehog music, Musashi Oboro was the author of VGM Quest, a video game podcast, between 2018 and 2020.

They also co-present "Options: Select Tune", a monthly live show on Twitch dedicated to VGM.
